another daredevil. another death-defying feat from david blaine. how could anyone survive letting perfect strangers zap them with volts of electricity. look, if you have copd like me, you know it can be hard to breathe, and how that feels. copd includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema. spiriva helps control my copd symptoms by keeping my airways open for 24 hours. plus, it reduces copd flare-ups. spiriva is the only once-daily inhaled copd maintenance treatment that does both. spiriva handihaler tiotropium bromide inhalation powder does not replace fast-acting inhalers for sudden symptoms. tell your doctor if you have kidney problems, glaucoma, trouble urinating, or an enlarged prostate. these may worsen with spiriva. discuss all medicines you take, even eye drops. stop taking spiriva and seek immediate medical help if your breathing suddenly worsens, your throat or tongue swells, you get hives, vision changes or eye pain, or problems passing urine. other side effects include dry mouth and constipation. nothing can reverse copd. spiriva helps me breathe better.

houdini, evel knievel, david blaine, showmen all, but what separates daredevils from mere stunt men may be the backdrop. the tightrope walker perched over niagara falls is as compelling in 2012 as it was in 1876 or a man-made wonder, a bridge or a building or a pair of buildings. philippe petit, the "man on a wire," whose flight of fancy is all the more poignant because that wonder is gone. like petit, felix baumgartner spent years planning this jump just as others are now planning what may be the next great frontier, a journey to the center of the earth, jules verne for real to study the origins of life. less than a century ago, pilots were daredevils. >> lindbergh and "the spirit of st. louis." >> reporter: charles lind berg and amelia earhart pushing boundaries that now we take for granted. without neal armstrong, there'd be no felix baumgartner. >> that's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind. >> reporter: of course, baumgartner's giant leap didn't defy gravity. he submitted to gravity all the way down. david wright, abc news, los angeles. >>> and thank you so much for
